and will be, extremely valuable. The
number issued Is ouly eleven thousand of
each volume, and of these only seven hun
dred are offered for sale. The volumes
nbould therefore bo carefully preserved,
both for reference ami alo as a speculation,
as they will, unless) Congress orders other

The eighth volume now at band is es
pecially interesting to Kansas people, and
especially to Kansas soldiers, as it is en
tirely dootcd to operations in Missouri,
Arkansas, Kansas and Indian Territory,
Iroin November 10, 1661, to April 10. 1SG2.
The principal military events being the
battle of l'ea Hldge and Hie capture of
New Madrid, but giving, withal, the details
of hundreds cf kkirmiclic, marches, etc.,
in which Kan-as troops participated.
lu tooling over this volume we are im
pressed with the thought that it Is fortu
nate that tbe publication of these archives
was delayed until the prominent actors iu
tbe scenes of those d.ivs had passed away.
Had these papers' been published earlier,
they would have provoked an endless series
f controversies and recriminations. As It
is, of those who ligurc in the book, (lens.
Hunter, Ualleck and Curtis are dead ; Jan.
II. Lane Is also dead ; aud ol (Jen. Hunter's
staff on assuming command or the Depart
ment of Kansas in November, 1801, thr
three highest officers, (leu. liarncs, Medi
cal Director, Major Charles (1. llalpine. As
sistant Adjutant General, and Capt. Marcus
J. l'arrott, Assistant Adjutant General, are
dead.
All the feuds, quarrels' and animosities,
and the plots and counter-plots growing
out ol them,, arc exposed to light In this
volume. They were known to but lew,
and merely suspected by the greater num
ber at the time, but here they stand In un
comfortable nakedness. It Is fortunate
that they were not known by the rouutri
aud the army, when the Intelligence would
have becu demoralizing to tbc cause. Hut
uow we havo them revealed iu their corres
pondence, Oeu. llalleck, wordy, fussy,
zealous, wishing, doubtless, to do his duty
to his country, but wishing to do It on the
condition that he should be the everlasting
military '-boss" of the country; baling the
(ierinans of his command, and a great many
other people besides. Here is (leu. Seho
Held, a smaller copy of (len. llalleck, and
here ta Gen. Hunter, stubborn and mulish,
engaged in au interminable quarrel with
Gen. Lane, who flits here and there, coin
ing and going; commanding a brigade
without a commission, and busy at the
devil iu a gale of wind, with bis mvthical
'Southern Kxpedition," which never start
ed, and which Gen. Hunter stoutly avcrsit
was never Intended should start.
looking over the story of the war iu iu
entirely, Kansans arc prone to think that
Kansas did very well, but looking over the
record compiled iuthis volume, itis curious
to observe tbe suspicious dislike and even
hatred of Kansas aud Kansas eoldirsetiuc
cd by the general officers to whom Kan-as
soldiers looked for orders.
Gen. Hunter assumed command of tbc
Department of Kansas November 2., 1601,
establishing his headquarters at Fort
Leavenworth, and appears to have jumped
into a kettle of hot water, which was kept
at a fervid boil until his removal, iu March,
1602.
Gen. Hallcck'a correspondence in Kansas
affairs principally relates to "jaw hawkers,"
whose exploits kept him lu a state, so to
speak, of constant uproar. He declares
that Kansas soldiers havo no busluesi to
come wilhiu the limits of Missouri, that
they "'are no better than a band of robbers."
Gen. llalleck repeatedly declares that he
will hang, shoot and make prisoners of the
Kansas troops be catches in Missouri, but
dually turns the matter over to Hunter,
saving, "Keep tbe Kansas troops out of
Missouri, and I will keep the Mlssnurians
out of Kansas. They cau't agree, and
make infinite trouble. The only way is to
keep them apart."
Tbc greater part of Gen. Hunter's cor
respondence with Gen. llalleck and the
War Department relates to the machina
nous oi ucn. iane. as Hunter had no
more humor than a lobster, it is fortunate
that his letters wcro written lor him by his
Adjutant General, Major Charles G. Hal
pine, the famous "Miles O'Kcilly," who
penned "We have Drank Irom the .Same
Canteen." Major llalpine contrives to
throw the light of humor over the grum
bling aud growling or his chief. It is a
great pity that Halpino dfd not write a his
tory of tbe famous "Southern Kxpedition."
In regard to this famous llash-in-the-pan
expedition there is much curious informa
tion. On page 027, Gen. Hunter is respect
fully informed Irom tbc headquarters that
Ilrlg. Gen. J. II. L.iue, V. S. Volunteers,')
has urged upon the President and Secre
tary of War au expedition to be conducted
,.!. 1.1..., t. .i.-.-t ..... ...
Iujf uiui uxaiusi. me regiou wesi ui Jliss
ouri and Arkansas, and that seven rcul-
menls or cavalry, three batteries of artil
lery, and four regiments of infantry have
been ''ordered to Kansas;" and that be has
becu authorized also to raise about 8.000 to
10,000 Kansas troops, and to organize 4,000
ludlans. Tbc order, as It may be so called,
says: "The outlines of bis (Gen. Lane's)
plans were staled by him to be according
to jour own (Gen. Hunter's) Icwb."
On page 8-10 Is a letter from Gen. Hunter
to Gen. llalleck, evidently written by Ma
jor llalpiue, saying :
"You can hardly conceive to what an ex
tent the nulhoritics at Washington have
can led their belief In a sort of Damon and
l'ytblas affection between that gentleman
and myself. In fact I may say that,
so far as Washington was concerned, the
Kansas Senator would seem to havo effect
ually "jaw hawked" of the minds of the
War Department any know ledge or reraem
brance of the General commanding this de
partment.
"And now we have reached an a-pect of
the case which would be lutensely ludicrous
If not so fraught with humiliation to offi
cials and detriment to tbe public service.
I am da ly receiving letters from Majors,
Colonels and Lieut. Colonels, announcing
tbatlbey have been appointed aides-de
camps on tbe staff of Gen. McClellan, with
orders to report to me in person, that I may
again order them to duty on ftaff of -lirig.
Gen. J. II. Lane.'
"The trouble Is that I know of no inch
brigadier general. Senator Lane having
told me expressly, and in explicit terms, at
the only interview we have bad since his
return to Kansas, that be bad not accepted
bis commission, and was only my visitor
'as a Senator and member of the Military
Committee of the Senate of the United
States.' "
Trior to this, however, Gen. Hunter bad
Issued bis famous order announcing tbatbe
should bead the expedition himself, taking
along no baggage except "one shirt, one
pair of drawers, ona pair of socks, and one
handkerchief." This order, might well
have been written by Private O'Reilly him
self, uudertbe Influence of a drop of "moun
tain dew."
And so tbe "Southern Expedition," II
it was ever Intended to amount to anything,
ignoralnlously fizzled out.
Major Ualplae's last-appearance in Kan
sas, In this volume, is In a report respect
ing tbe condition of the Kansas troops as
they were found on Gen. Hunter's assump
tion ol command. After speaking Id com
pliHseiiUry terms or tbe First and Eighth
Kansas Infantiy, aud the Seventh Cavalry,
tie proceeds to give Lao's brigade one
more lively deal:
"Nothing could exceed tbe demoralized
condition la which Gen. Hooter found the
Third aad Fourth Kansas Infantry, and tbe
Fiflh aad Sixth Kaesas Cavalry, formerly
known aa "Lane's brigade,'' on his arrival
at tali departaseat. The regimental aad
comrasy coantaadera knew nothing or
theii.' cMlee, aad apparently bad never
taado Mores or resorts of aay kind. Tbe
rtjrlauatt appeared la wane ceaditioa

M aw fteesiac together, far-
Uatftsi hetac graalad, er, where aet grant-
taken, drill having been abandoned almost
wholly, and tbe men constituting a mere
ragged, half-armed, diseased and mutinous
rabble, taking votes as to whether any
troublesome ordistastclul order should be
obeyed or defied."
This is bad enough, but further on he
makes the unaccountable statement :
"It was represented that all Kansas bad
taken arms, when, in fact, no Stite has
been more backward."
It came out all right, as the world knows.
Tbe volunteers that Gen. llalleck. Hunter,
and the rest seem to have despised so much
did well their part; defending their own
border; driving tbe invader to the far
south ; and carrying the bright flag of Kan
sas on glorious and distant fields.
The Vhamplcn has referred to tbc extra
ordinary statement embodied in a Icttct
written by Maj. Chas. G. llalpiue, Adju
tant General on tbc staff of Maj. Gen. Hun
ter, commanding the department of Kan
sas, addressed to Maj. Gen. llalleck, and
dated March 14, 1SC2 Thl letter, which
purports to give an account of the troops
In Gen. Hunter's department, declares that
the Kansas troops, except the First, Sev
enth and eighth regiments, were, atthe
time of Gen. Hunter's arrival, in Novem
ber, 1SC1, "a ragged, hair-armed, diseased,
and mutinous rabble," and goes on to add :
"It was represented that all Kansas had
flocked to arms, whereas, in fact, no State
has been more backward.'
As this correspondence has just now, for
the first time, been made public, by Its pub
lication in the official records, Vol. VIII,
Series 1, let us sec how Maj. Halpinc's as
sertion agrees with the facts.
At the date of Maj. Halpinc's letter,
President Lincoln bad issued two calls for
troops, ono dated April IS, IMil, lor T.i,000
three-months men ; and one dated May 3,
1601, for fiOO.OOO three-years volunteers.
Under the first call, Kansas was aligned
no quota, but furnished CTiO, Second Kan-as
Infantry, which, during Its three-months
term of service, engaged in one of tbe most
arduous campaigns of the war, ending with
the battle of Wilson's Creek, in which it
acquitted iUtlf with distinguished gallan
try. Under tbe second call, tbc quota as
signed 4o Kansas was 3,2.15, but the State
did actually furnish C,9.Y1 volunteers for
three years more than double the quota
assigned it the regiments being the First,
Firtb, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and
Tenth, and tbc First Ilattcry. We obtain
our figures from tbe "Statistical 1'econl of
the Armies of the United States," recently
published by Scribncr's Sons, and compiled
by Capt Fred. Phisterer, U. S. Army.
One the 2d of July. ISttJ, the President's
third call, for 300,000 three-years men, was
issued. Kansas was assigned, under this
call, n quota of 1,771 and actually furnished
2,300.
The President's fourth call was issued
August 4, I6R2, for 300,000 militia for uiuc
mouths. The quota of Kansas was 1,771,
but the Stale furnished no troops under
this call. Indeed, with the exception of
those cnllstitig uudertbe first call, the en
tire body of Kansas volunteers went iu for
three years or during the war.
The President's fifth call, Issued October
17, 1603, and the sixth call, Issued February
1, 1601, were for 500,000 men, In the aggre;
gate, for three J cars. The quota of Kansas
under these calls, was 3,r3, but the State
actually raised 0,374 men, all enlisted in
16G3, under the cab of October 17.
The President's seventh call, issued
Marclj 14, 1604, was lor 200,000 three-years
men, and the quota of Kansas was 1,401)
The State, however, actually raised 2,'i0.'l
men.
lielwecn April 23d aud July 18th, 1601,
Kansas furnished 441 militia who were
mustered Into the service of the United
States for one hundred days, although no
quota was assigned the State.
The President's eighth call, dated July
18, 1SGI, was for 000,000 men. This call was
reduced by the excess ol credits on previous
calls, and so no quota was assigned to Kan
sas, our State having furnished, already,
nearly double the number of volunteers
called for. Nevertheless Kansas furnished,
under this call, 351 men.
The ninth aud last call was issued Decem
ber 19th, 1604, but the necessity for more
men ceased long before the several States
had completed their quotas. Kansas was
called on for 1,512 men, and furnished 863.
Kansas was called on, during tbc period
of the war, for a total of 12,931 men, and
actually furnished 20,101, nearly all for
three years.
Only six other Northern State", viz.,
Vermont, Massachusetts, Khodo Island,
Connecticut, Ohio, nnd Illinois, furnished
volunteers exceeding in number the quotas
assigned them, and in all these States the
excess was small. Kansas alone, of all the
Stales, furnished nearly twice as many vol
unteers as she was called on for.
The little book from which we quote
these figures summarizes tbe troops fur
nished by Kansas as follows :
"Cavalry for thrco years' service and
over, four regiments ; lor three years ser
vice, five regiments; total, nine regiments.
Light Artillery for three years' service
and over, two batteries ; for three years'
service, one battery; total, three batteries.
Infantry for three years' service and
over, three regiments ; for three years' ser
vice, five regiments; for three years' ser
vice, colored troops, two regiments; for
one hundred days' service, five companies;
total, ten regiments and five companies.
Total nineteen regiments, five compan
ies, and three batteries.
Compare the enlistments and population
of Kansas with those of any other State.
For instance, tbc population of Kansas, in
I SCO, was only 197,20C,yet the Slate furnish
ed 19 regiments, 5 companies, and 3 batter
iesequivalent to 20 lull regiments. Maine,
with a population, in 1800, or C2H.279, fur
nished 33 regiments, 7 batteries and 50 com
panies equivalent to about forty regi
ments. Six times the population of Kan
sas, yet only double tbc number of volun
teers. New Hampshire, with a population
of 320,083 three times that or Kansas
furnished 10 regiments, one battery and 4
companies, or only about the samo number
of organizations as Kansas. So the com
parison runs through tbc entire list of
States.
As to the service rendered by the troops
so severely criticised by Major Halphine,
at the beginning of tbe war, let Provost
Marshal General Fry, writing alter the
close of. the .war. in January, 1807, speak.
Gen. Fry's report, ol the date qtiotel,gives
the p-oporlfon, per thousand men, which
each loyal Stale contributed to the Item of
mortality. Kansas heads the column, her
proportion beingCt.Ot ; Vermout is second,
03.22; and Massachusetts third, 47.70. Gen.
Fry writes :
"Kansas shows the highest battle, mortal
ity or the table. Tbe same singularly mar
tial disposition which induced about half of
tbe able-bodied men of tbe State to enter
tbe army without bounty may lie supposed
to have inspired tbclr exposure to the
casualties ol battlo after they were In the
service."
THE SUSTAINING POWER OF WILL
It may now be remembered by veterans
who watched with admiration, or with be
wilderment and confused doubt, the politi
cal actions of Mr. Disraeli, twenty-five years
ago or more, that be gave himself three
years to live. It was thought by himself

CHURCH GOING.
The North American Kttitw for July con
tains a series of articles by four different
writers on tbe subject of "Church Atten
dance." Tbe first is by a non-church-goer,
who seeks to find reasons for what be be
lievesto be a falling off in church attend
ance, which be asserts has beensteadily go
ing ou. while the remaining three writers
combat his reasons aud theories. He as
serts that in these dsys only a small per
cent, ol intelligent and respectable people
Is in regular attendance upon religious ser
vices. Tbc teasers given are tbat tbe world
has been progressing and that theology
which was once in the van of human pro.
grcs'Ion. has fallen into tbe rear and Is in
danger ot being left altogether. Tbe theo
logical teaching once potent in the minds
of men, have in the past, been superceded
by tbe results of scientific and philosophi
cal inquiry. Dogmas tbat once keptsuper
stitious minds in awe have lost their pow
er. Men arc no worse now than in by-gone
ages; they arc better lu tact and jet Ihey
believe far less in the supernatural and im
probable. In which theology deals so laige
ly. The result is they believe less in its
teachings and wearisome repetition. Tbe
writer asks, why should men go to church?
declares It repels when it should attract,
aud proscribes free inquiry and thus drives
intelligent men away. He declares that it
cramps the minds of Its ministers uutittbey
arc nothing but intellectual light weights.
Tbe mediocrities or tbe seminaries go to
the pulpit. They offer nothing for the
mental aril moral digestion of healthy men.
They minister chiefly to the superstitious,
tbc narrow-minded and morbid, and tbe
masculine sex is rapidly disappearing from
their ranks. He further asserts that the
people are repelled because the pulpit is
behind the age. Unbelievers are not as
bad as it declares. As a rule they are In
telligent, earnest and honest.
Another cause for remaining away from
church Is stated to be tbc constant de
mands made upon those who go. Men
would cheerfully pay pew rent, but they
arc constantly assailed with solicitations
for contributions to a hundred purposes
fonign to their object in going to church.
SI en naturally abhor beggars. They are
asked to psy debts which they bsvc never
sanctioned and could never have afforded.
The church Is declared to be greedy, per
sistent, almo-t impudent. If men do not
give, if they do not approve, If they refuse
the demands made upon them, they arc
measured accordingly and made to feel that
they arc nobody in the society of tbe church.
The result is tbat men are drawn away from
the church and find a more comfortable, If
not better, sanctuary in tbeir home clrilrs.
On the other hand the assertion tbat only
a small per cent, or tbc respectable element
In the community attend church is strcne-
ously denied. Out of our fifty millions of
population ten millions are communicant
members of prntcstaut churches and there
arc besides six millions of Catholics. Here
we have sixteen millions of active adult
church members which represent fully six
million families. Surely this does not look
as tr the churches failed to attract men or
intelligence and culture. It is further
shown that the per cent, ol church goers
has increased more rapidly than the popu
lation. In ISO) there were only 305,000
evangelical communicants in the country,
or 7 per cent, nf the entire population. In
1660 the communicants had risen to over
ten millions, or over 20 percent, of the en
tire population, ir there are some emi
nently respectable men who are not church
goers, the rule Is entirely the otucr way.
It is a well known fact that It is more often
Ihe low, tbrirtless and lawless who arc non
church goers To join a church is at once
a step toward respectability, it is true
some intelligent men remain away, but
they are the exceptions. Who is it that
have established colleges and endowed our
ministers and charitable institutions, near
ly to a man tbey have been constant church
goers and believers. Take a country vil
lage and reckon the people, and you will
find most of them are attendants ol public
worship.
Watch the doors of Fifth avenue on Sun
day morning aud you will see tbo world of
wealth, culture and fashion on its way to
church. Never was church going so uni
versal as at the present time. Local ex
ceptions are due lo local causes. Perhaps
if church going could be made very cheap,
it it gave premiums to visitants,more would
attend. Some, like Walt Whitman, "want
a place to lo if aud invite bis soul," but
this is not the church Idea. Tbe church
has proven iudispcnsable to human wel-
larc. "Organized society is at best but a
thin crust over a seething ocean of destruc
tive passions, which continually threaten
to break through and destroy. The at
tempt to keep these formidable forees in
check by brute force has always euded in
failure. Tbc only method by which society
can protect and advance itself is through
Christianity, and the church pursues to
day with tireless energy tinder better
methods and with better results than ever
before." it is false to ascrtlhat science is
doing more for morals than the church.
The church is no more a beggar than the
State. Both exact service and money.
There has been no decay of laith The
present age is pre-eminent over all that has
gone before in hope and trust. Has there
been in the church such a wealth or mind,
scholarship, variety or culture, and gener
al accomplishments as to-day? Never i:ld
the Christian ministry stand so high. All
professions have weak representations in
their service, and it is Indisputable that
the church is not exempt. But Is this a
reason to condemn it? That there, i- much
balling doubt about Is not denied, but it is
the child of ignorance, not of Intelligence.
Science lias so far donn nothing to unsettle
one single article of Christian faith. While
sin remains in the world so long will tbe
church attract tbe hope, and faith of men.
Its mission cannot end because these will
remain with us until the end or time.
Dogmas may charge but the fundamental
truths of religion imi-l endure forever, be
cause engrafted lu the very natures of men.
Sclenco can never do tbe work of the
church. It may, lo a certain extent, culti
vate tlio intellect, but will never fill Ihe
needs of that higher nature implanted iu
all rational creatures. What is there to
take (ho church's place In tbe world? We
cast about us in vain for an answer. While
society holds together, tbe services of the
divinely ordained institution must remain
to comfort and bless.
IT SUITED HIM.
"It's a great pity," said tbe minister In a
sad tono to a Germau clothing merchant,
"that Adam tell."
"I don'd know about! dot."
"It nrougbt sin into the world, and en
tailed upouall succeeding generations a life

"Dot ish vot you make oud mlt it."

, SLAVE INBUSTRY.
After tbe war, says a correspondent, when
the number or our servants Waa much re

THE CYCLONE.
Tbe term cyclone, as applied to the vio
lent atmospheric disturbances which have
characterized the late storms tb'at bavo ap
peared in a number or localities, has I e
come or inch use and repetition, tbat un
learned and unscientific people have come
to look upon it as tbe right word in tbe
right place. The term sounds well enough
as descriptive or a certain kind or storm,
but as there Is no such thing as a cyclone
occuring on land, It Is high time for correc
tions to be applied in onlerto school tbe
reading and thinking public In tbo use or
proper terms and tbeir meaning.
We will quote from Prof. Loomis, author
and standard authority on tbe subject :
"Tbe inequalities of. the earth's surfase,
especially in billy countries, greatly modify
tbe direction or wind, so that In great
storms tbe movements or the atmosphere
ofteu seem very complex and anomalous.
Over the ocean these disturbing causes do
not exist, and here we find that In violent
storms tbe movements of the air are much
more regular and unifonn. This motion of
tbc wind has generally been found to be
in great circuits, spirally inward toward
the center or the storm, and such storms
are now commonly designated by the term
cyclone. These storms prevail In the neigh
borhood or the West India Islands. They
are also common in the Chiua sea and iu
tbe Indian ocean, on both sides ol the
equator. Tbey originate near tbe equator
ial limit or the trade winds, where these
winds are Irregular. The West India
storms originate between latitude 10 de
grees and 20 degrees n., and longitude 00
degrees and sixty degrees w., on the bor
ders or tbe zone or calms and variable
winds, which corresponds with the zone or
constant precipitation. In tbc northern
hemisphere, within the region or the trade
winds, cyclones travel toward the west, In
clining to tbe north. Near latitude 20 de
grees tbe motion from tbc equator is more
decided, and in latitude 25 degrees they
mov c to the northwest. Near the parallel
or 30 degrees tbeir course Is almost exactly
north, and soon tbey begin to veer to the
cast, after which tbeir course is nearly
parallel to tbe coast of the United States.
In the Southern hemisphere cyclones pur
sue a similar course. The motion or tbe
air In a cyclone is spirally upward, but the
whirling motion is more decided than on
land. North or tbe equator tbo motion is
from right to left ; south of the equator tbe
motion is from left to right, or in the same
direction as the bauds ol a watch. Cyclones
extend over a circle from 100 to 000 miles in
diameter, and often 1,000 miles. Tbc vio
lence of the wind increases from tbe mar
gin of the center, with the exception or a
limited space in tbe center or which is a
dead calm. The duration or the storm at
any time depends upon the extent or tbe
storm, but usually from live to twelve hours.
The parabolic course or storms from near
the equatoj towards the poles results Irom
the rotary motion of the earth. When a
largo mass or air in the Northern hemis
phere is put in rotation about a vertical
axis the particles on tbe east side ol the
center, crossing successively parallels or
latitude whose eastern motiou is less than
their own, arc deflected toward tiie west.
Particles on the north or south side "f the
ceuter are deflected in a similar manner.
Consequently the revolving masses of air
iu every portiou or the circuit are deflected
toward tbe right. The pressure ou tbe po
lar aldo Is greater than tbe equatorial;
hence the mass moves In tbe direction or

This, then, is a general outline of a cy

nature tbat the so-called cyiloue (tornado)
of our locality is or but little weight.
A storm or such huge dimensions, start
ing lu tbe gttir regions and taking iu nat
ural course, would destroy our whole
country ; happily then, nature has made
laws to govern storms, as well as tbe ten-
derest or plants. Tornadoes "sometimes
near the center or the great storm, tbe
general inward tendency or tbe air, causes
a violent whirlwind, or tornado, where the
wind revolves with such violence as to
prostrate apparently immovable objects,
such as trees, rocks, heavy bodies and the
like. Tbe motion or tbe air in tornadoes is
spirally Inward and upward, so that from
each side or tbo track objects are drawn
inward toward tbe center or the track and
are carried upward. Llgb objccti arc car

THE KISSING CUSTOM.
In former years, In England, tbe custom
of saluting ladles witb a kiss seems to have
been very general. It was, however, occa
sionally severely censured. Thus, for in
stance, John Bun van, I n his "(i race Abound
ing," says:
"Tbe common salutation of women I ab
hor; Itis odious to me In whomsoever! see
It. When I have seen good men salute those
women that they have visited, or that have
visted them, I have mado my objections
against it; and when they have answered
tb'at It was but a pieco of civility, I have
made my object Ions against it; I have told
them tbat ft was not a comely sight. Some,
Indeed, have urged the holy kls; but then
I have asked them why they made bulks?
why they did salute tbe most handsome and
let tbc lli-lavored go?"
Cavendlsb, In his "Biography of Cardinal
Wolsey," dwells on this custom, when de
scribing bis visit to Moos. Crequi's Castle:
"I being in a fair. great dining chamber,"
he tells us, "wbeie tbe table was covered
for dinner, and there I attended my lady's
coming; and after she came thitberout of
her own chamber she received me most
gently, like one or noble estate, having a
train of gentlewomen, and when sbe with
her train came all out, sbe said to me, 'For
as much,' quoth she, 'as ye be an English
man whose custom It Is toklsaall ladieaand
gentlewomen without offense, and althougb
it be not so in this realm (France), yet will
I be so bold to kiss you, and so shall all my
maidens.' By means whereof I kissed my
lady and all her maidens."
Chaucer frequently alludes to this old cus
tom, and our readers may recollect bow iu
the "Sompnour'i Tale" be notices tbe zeal
witb which tbe holy father performs this
act or gallantry. When tbe mistress or tbe
bouse enters tbe room, where be If busily

THE HERO BUCKSHITH.
The hero of tbe following thrilling story
was embodied In tbe person of a stout black
smith, aye. a bumble blacksmith, but In Ids
stout frame hardened with toil, throbbed as
generous an Impulse of freedom as ever
beat In the bosom or Lafayette or around
tbe heart Mad Anthony Wayne.
It was In full tide of tbe retreat tbat a fol
lower of tho American camp who bad at
least shouldered a cart-wblp In his country's
service, was dragging a baggage wagou
from the field ol battle, while some short
distance behind, a body ol Contlurutal
were pushing forward with a body or Brit
ish ii pursuit.
The wagon bad arrived at a narrow point
or tbe by-roads leading to the south, where
two high banks of rocks and cracks, arising
ou either side, afforded just space sufficient
for the passage of the baggage wagons, and
not an inch more.
Ills eyes were arrested by tbe sight ol a
stout muscular man, apparently some forty
years of age, extended at the foot of a tree
at the very opening of the pass. He was
clad In tho coarse attire or a mechanic His
coat bad been flung aside, and with bis
shirt sleeves rolled up from bis muscular
arm, belay extended on tbe turf with bis
rifle in bis grasp, while tbe blood poured
rrom bis right leg in torrents, which was
broken at the knee by a cannau ball.
Tbe wagoner's sympathies were aroused
by tbe sight, lie would have paused in the
very Instance or bis flight, and placed the
wounded blacksmith in his wagon, but the
stout-hearted man refused.
"I'll not go into your wagon," said he,ln
bis rough way, "but I'll tell you what I
will do. Do you see yonder cherry tree on
the top ot that rock tbat bangs over tbe
road ? Do you think you can lift a man or
my build up there? Foryousec neighbor,"
he continued, while tbe blood flowed down
rrom his wound, "I never meddled witb
the Britishers until tbey came tramdling
over this valley and burned my house down.
And now I am all riddled to pieces, and
hain't got more than fifteen minutes iu me;
but I've got three balls in my cartridge box,
and so just prop me up against that tree,
and I'll give them the whole three shots,
and then," exclaimed tbc blacksmttb, "I'll
die '
The wagoner started his horses ahead,
and then with a sudden effort dragged tbe
wounded man along the rod to tbc foot of
tbe tree. His face was turned to tbe ad
vancing troopers, and wbllo bis shattered
leg hung over the bank, tbe wagoucr push
ed on his way, when tho doomed black
smith proceeded coolly to load bis rifle.
It was not long before a body of Ameri
can solders rushed by us with tbc British
in pursuit. Tbe blacksmith greeted them
with a shout, and, raising his rifle to his
boulder, he picked the foremost Britisher
from bis spirited steed, with tbe exclama
tion "That's for General Washington !"
In a moment the rifle was reloaded, and
again it was fired, and the pursuing British
rode over another of their fallen officers.
"That's for myself," cried tho blacksmith
and then, witb a band strong with tbe feel
ing of approaching death, again loaded,
raised his rifle, fired his lastsbot and anoth
er soldier kissed tbe sod ! A fear quivered
in tbe eye of the dying blacksmith.
"Aud that," he raid, In a husky voice,
which strengtheno I almost into a shout,
"is for Mad Anthony Wajnel"
Long after tbe battle of the Brandy wine
was past, tho body was discovered against
the tree, with the features frozen in death,
smiling grimly while his right hand still
grasped tbe never-failing rifle.
And thus died one of the thousand brave
mechanic heroes of the Revolution ; brave
in the hourof battle, undaunted in tbe hour
or retreat, and undismayed iu the moment
or death.
KANSAS DIAGONAL RAILWAY.
Abilene, July 7, 1S33
To the Editor of tkt Ckvmpioa :
The above organization Is chartered, and
now has its corps or engineers actively en
gaged In sui vcying its route. The compa
ny was organized at Clay Center, Kansas,
June 27th, and propose to run Its lines from
Wymore and Blue Springs, Nebraska, thro'
Ballard's Falls, Greenlear, Clay Center, Ab
ilene, to McPherson county, Kansas, where
it branches, tbc southern branch going to
Newton, Wichita, Wlnflclil and Arkansas
City, where It will connect with the San
Antonio (Texas) nnd Arkansas City rail
way, which Is about to be built. The south
western branch passes through Mcl'beraon,
Hutchinson on to Kingman and Medicine
Lodge, Tor the cattle trade. The company
has been organized by the representative
business men along the proposed route, for
tbe purpose or findlug outlets and connect
ing routes to tbe centers tbat they now deal
in. At Wymore ami Blue Springs the Kan
sas corporation will unite with tbc Kansas
Diagonal hlch will run through Tecum
ten to Nebraska City. At the latter place
It will connect with tbe Iowa Diagonal,
which has about completed Its line through
Des Moines rrom McGregor, Iowa. The
latter road will soon be completed to the
Missouri river. The three Diagonals run
through the heart or the three great sister
States. At Greenleaf and Tecumseh It will
open up uew route.) and fields to aud from
Atchison, St. Joseph, Leavenworth aud
Kansas City. It will vim the northern
part of Kansas and Nebraska a close con
nection with five additional eo.il roads of
the Kansas coal field'. The company mean
to push tbe matter to Its completion, and
will leav e no stone unturned to do so. Tbey
have confidence iu the project, aud with the
hearty sympathy and support tbat they have
tbey will succeed. The great 1 nterest man
ifested along the proposed line, by the large
meetings and support of the whole farming
commuuity, certainly shows that the road
will be a sure thing.
At Abilene, on July 2d, a very large and
enthusiastic meeting was held. Witb the
whole country, and nearly all or the busi
ness men in favor or it, our city will do her
share to secure what will be a bright chap

MARTIN VAN BUREN.

en. Tbe secret or his power seems U bavo

an orator, and yet mutt have possessed great
powers at an advocate, lie it not usually
credited with bavini: devised any creat pub
lic measures, yet, during tbe most Impor
tant epoch ol bit party's history, every
measure to which it owed success not only
required bit approval, but showed his shap
ing, modifying touch. He was not eminent
In debate, but was always a leader or bis
party in legislation.
He it said to bare been personally calm,
self-poised and unconfiding. He heard ev
ery one's opinion, but took no one's advice.
He waa accounted threwd and cunning, but
never was accused of personal treachery.
He was cautious to tbe verge of timidity,
and, at tbe tame time, confident lo tbe verge
of rashness. He never exulted over victo
ry, nor whimpered under defeat. He bad
few personal friends but an amazing popu
lar following.
In theory be was tbe broadest of demo
crats ; lu practice tbe most exclusive or ar
istocrats. None or bit associates seem te
have regarded him with affection, and few
of hi opponent looked upon bim with an
imosity.
Perhaps no political life In our history

or hit life the opportunity to lead Ibe move

SINGULAR DREAMS.
In almost all primitive nations, dreams
were referred directly to Go-I or to evil
spirits. The ancient writers of Greece and
Borne give Innumerable Instance ot warn
ings sent to mau In I his way. Indeed, 'In
terpreter of Dreams" was a regular profes
sion Iu Athens and throughout Italy.
The blgb-priest or dreams was au Eplie
alan named'Artemldoru, who lived In the
second century. His Onclrncrit'ci" is the
basis for all books on dreams iu every lan
guage. Tbe ordinary reader would be sur
prised to find bow many or these books
there are, and how important a science the
f Interpretation or our sleeping faneie was
considered lor mauy ages.
Most or tbe leading divines in the Chris
tian church down to tho present ceutury
believed that God still occasionally used
dreams as a medium of communication with
men. Calvin gave many examples or this.
Bishop Cowper declared tbat a dream bad
brought him to bis work. Bishop Ken held
tbat there was a special dream-angel.
In later days, men have been content to
record remarkable dreams without attempt
ing to explain nr construct a science out ol
them. 3Iany or these dreams nave been
brought to notice in courts of justice. The
court of Areopagus put to death a thief on
tbe sole testimony of a dream ol Sophocles;
and modern courts, while professedly re
jecting all such testimony, bavo sometimes.
been Influencod by It.
In Burton's"CrimlnsI Trials In Scotland,'
there Is an official account of the trial and
execution, In 1831, of a Hlghlauderin ICoss-
shiro for the robbery and murder or a ped
dler. Kraser, the only witness against him
twore that he was shown In a dream the
murderer and the place where tbe body was
hid.
A farmer was murdered ntar Dublin in
the beginning ol this century. An Idiot
boy started from his sleep tbe samo night,
crying,
"Uleck Is killed! I saw Shamtts dhu
More kill bim and bury him in the new
ditch!"
When Uleck was missed the ditch was
searched, the body found, and Shamus was
hung.
One ol the most curious fultillmcnts of a
dream Is told by Noel Pators, the English
artist. His mother dreamed that death, In
the shape or a hideous dwarf with an ax,
entered a corridor where she stood witb her
six cbilden. Sbe struggled to defend tbem,
but he struck down two. Three months
later the children all took scarlet fever and
these two died.
Many of these coincidences can bo ex
plained; but there are others which lead
us to doubt whether the treed spirit iu sleep
docs not sometimes penetrate Into that un
known country untrodden by any waklu
soul.
THE FAST SPEED OF A SMOKELESS EN-
GINE.
Locomotive engine No. 372, of the Phila
delphia & Reading railroad, which carried
off the highest honors at the Chicago expo
sition, made trips between Baltimore aud
Washington yesterday over the Baltimore
Jk Ohio at very last speed. It was in charge
or George Vernon, engineer, and Phillip
Waller, fireman. The U a. m. western ex
piess was hauled rrom Camdcu Station to
Washington In o2 minutes, with two stops.
The engine immediately returned with the
Pittsburg express in 30 miuutcs, iucludii.g
4 minutes for stops. At 2 p. iu a special
train or four coaches was run from Balti
more ts Washington in 39 minutes, making
tbe 24) miles to Laurel In !) minutes 31
miles to Hyattsvlllu in 32i minutes, and
31etropoIltan Junction, Washington, in 37)
minutes. Afterleaviug Laurel nluoconsec
utlve miles were run at an average speed ol
forty-nine seconds per mile, the highest
speed attained being at tbe rate of seventy
five miles per hour for several miles. Un
the return trip the engine hauled the 4:30 p.
m. Washington express making actual run
ning time 43 minutes. It Is claimed for this
type of cnginu that they burn all kinds of
coals, and their waste products, with facili
ty and ccono'Hjr of consumption, and, by
reason of their large grate surface, gener
ate steam with greater facility than do oth
er locomotives. On Hie severe runs made
with tbc engine rrom Chicago to Baltimore,
and on the runs yesterday, these claims
seemed well established. A noticeable len
ture or the performance was the entire ab
sence or smoke, though burning soft coal at
high speed and with full trains, and the ease
and facility with which thb engine took all
curves.
This engine, which is a representative or
tbo clas used in runulng tbe express trains
over the Bound Brook road, between Phil
adelphia and New York, is ltJ by 22 inch
cylinders, 03-inch dViving wheels, and
weighs 80,7.'0 pounds. Its peculiarity or
construction Is principally lu tbe fire-box,
which is eight feet wide inside, with a 31
inch combustion chamber and a grate urea
or CS feet. It has a vari ible exhaust nozzle
which In the trials yesterday was set at live
Inches. Its cab i also placed midway over
the holier and In froiitorthcflrc.box.whlch
extends entirely over and above the driving
wheels.
The heads of Ihe operating departments
of the Biltlmore.t Ohio were engaged In
the tests. Mr. J. E. Woottcn, general man
ager of the Heading, and Mr. C. G. SteRV,
Inspecting engineer. were theirgucsts. The
nerve with which Engineer Vernon took
his engine over tbe Washington brancli at
the phenomenal speed attracted general ad
miration from the railroaders Ualtimore

A WONDERFUL LAKE.
The llodle Fete I'rttt publishes tho fol
lowing description of Mono lake, a remark
able body of water :
Notwithstanding the steady influx of five
largo fresh water creeks and Innumerable
small streams, its bitter but pellucid waters
continue to give a sedimentary analysis of
43 part soda, 30 parts salt and 13 parts bo
rax and li.ne; that the lake is 2.1x19 miles
in diameter, and more than 200 feet deep in
places; that It contains two large and sev
eral small tufa islands, the first in magni
tude having an area of 2,200 acres, ami the
second 1.500 acres; that upon tho second
Island is the crater of a volcano that was in
active eruption as lato as VttA ; that upon
the larger Island and out 101 feet from It,
in 70 leet depth or water, are boiling
springs of asphalt, and that no living thing
exists (n the waters of the lake except the
Piute shrimp, a pink eyed worm that at
tains a length or about three-fourths of an
inch.
The valley, commonly called a desert,
surrounding tbe lake is about 30x30 miles
In diameter, and has at some not remots
period or tbo past bten wholly submerged
by mineral waters similar lo those which
now occupy tbe deeper portion or tbe ba
sin, as the waterroara along lbs western
wall Is nearly 1,000 feet above tbe present
surface ol the lake.
THE EGYPTIAN CARPENTER.
Tbe workmen of Egypt, In the days of
the Pharaohs, were excellent handicrafts
men, and never "scamped" tbeir work. In
carpentry the Egyptian! or old greatly ex
celled; tbeir mode ol Joining boards to
gether it worthy of remark, combining as
it did strength and neatness. When two
boards are joined together on tbe edge, by
our modern carpenters, they frequently in
sert small round pint In corresponding
ports of the eages, and then apply tbem
together. Tbe Egyptian carpenter was
not content witb tbit precaution, and hav
ing used flat pins for tbe purpose, about
two Inches In breadth, be secured these
again, after tbe boards bad been applied to
each other, by round plot driven vertically
through tbe boards and Into each ol tbe flat
plot. Thus the possibility or tbe joint
opening waa effectually prevented. Tbe
